Don't get much better than this one. I am now officially over the Qatar World Cup Fiasco. I can now smile broadly the rest of the day.

Check your local stations, this one should not be missed (even if you have to slog through the fundraising part)

Years ago when I was at college my Dad came down for Father's Weekend. After the football game but before the party my buddies and our Dads relaxed by watching some SRV video and having a barley pop or two. Stevie was sweating up a storm and in the middle of a screaming jam. His face all screwed up in a tight guitar god pose. And out of the blue my Dad says, "He looks like a skunk sucking sh!t through a screendoor." Everyone in the room broke down laughing. He swore it was a saying he heard from his Dad and others (rural Oregon). To this day I have never heard anyone else say the phrase but I can't watch SRV without thinking about it. Now I'm looking forward to watching the King-Vaughn show.

Based on those teeth, I used to think SRV was British.

You'd think so.

Another favorite phrase my great grandma used to say was "That politician's so crooked, when he dies they'll have to screw him into the ground." She was a firecracker.

This may be the first time Slade has made an appearance in these parts. Excellent.

I happened to see about a a half hour of this - pretty damn tasty. Seemed like SRV was deferring to Albert a lot. Since I'd never seen him, I was surprised to see AK as a leftie. His guitar technique is deceptively simple, but very effective. A real blues clinic.

Yeah, while I love the CD, now having a visual to go with it will only add to the overall experience.

No doubt, I dont think I have ever seen Albert play before? I may have to see whats on youtube to get a head start.
